This morning I woke up and couldn't move my arms. When I picked up Max out of his crib I grimaced with pain. YEAH I"M SORE! I couldn't be more excited. Some of you may think I'm crazy but to me the soreness you get after working out means I accomplished my task of pushing myself.
I love working out because of the way it makes me feel during the day but have been struggling with trying to fit it into my busy "new/working mom" schedule. I tried working out over lunch but found that I made excuses a lot about needing some relaxing time to refresh over lunch. Yesterday I decided that the best thing for me to do is to try and workout in the morning. I was up at 5:34am (my alarm went off at 5:30 and I sat there for 4 minutes trying to decide if I should really get out of bed). I've done this before I thought, I used to wake up at 5:00am and meet my friend Jackie at the gym by 5:30 so this should be easy. Once I was up and out of bed I was excited and ready to go. The best thing is that I have a full two room fitness center right in my apartments so I didn't even have to travel anywhere!
Yesterday was a success as I was able to get in a good strength training workout of chest, back and abs. Let's hope I can keep it up!
